by the government on purpose. and today, in syria, where they are in year two of a very violent uprising, someone today in syria turned off the whole internet. the whole thing. for the whole country. all of a sudden. like a light switch. look at this graph. shows people using the internet in syria this morning. typing along. tweeting. whatever. and then, boom. lights out. no more internet in syria. somebody hit the off switch. here's another view. the internet in syria humming along, and then all of a sudden, nothing. syria has three cables that connect it to the rest of the world. as of about noon today, local time, this shows the traffic on those cables. all three cables just shut down instantly, off a cliff, nothing moving into syria, nothing flowing out. it's not like this has never happened before. syria has shut down the internet at times of military offensives in this uprising before. and we have seen other governments do this before. the government in egypt shut down the internet last year during the revolution there that toppled mubarak. same thing with government in libya. in the months
government and freep enterprise movement and connect those policies. >> why has there been a failure to connect? >> i'm not sure there is one reason for it and i haven't had time to think about it why it has happened but it needs to happen. the principles we stand for, free enterprise and limited government is the only way to stabilize and grow our middle class which i hope every american can attain. >> how worried are you about the republican chances -- >> you mean from the voters' perspective. the demographic changes? i don't think any voter in america -- there are voters that are locked into one party or the other but the fastest growing group is people who vote for candidates and not parties and people understand the issues and hopes that they have and offer real and concrete policy situations and real role for government to play in addressing those angst yits they face. we are one election away to do it. we have to recognize what it is and concentrate on doing it. >> how much of a danger to republicans do you think is posed by the changing demographic? >> it's not a danger but i
. and as margaret thatcher pointed out many years ago, the problem with socialist governments is that eventually they run out of other people's money to spend, and that is what is happening here in the united states. a poll came out today showing that 45 percent of democrats look favorably upon socialism which is a deeply worrying development. fortunately most americans -- gerri: did you say 45? gerri: 45? >> 45 percent of democrats according to a rasmussen poll published earlier today. fortunately the overall majority still believe in a capitalist free enterprise system, so there is still. gerri: the problem with what is being talked about, what is on the table is that it changes so dramatically. individuals, business operators. it -- one each address this directly. wealthy people will never change the way live. it won't change and they spend, how they invest. just because that tax policy. you're laughing? >> that is nonsense. common sense tells you it is not true. an enormous amount of evidence. the to the merit of the european experience. as the france, the british. the answer will be known.
more on the government and thanks to the method it's the same thing right now. there is overwhelming contribution that this is the time having the government spend more would be freed, putting people to work with the unemployed that would be basically doing nothing and essentially it is very easy and very hard politically because it is hard to persuade people about the need to do that which is why some of us books. [laughter] >> some of those would argue it's like a sugar pill for the transient work of time and then you fell back. i think it's a very interesting story. why did little more to, why didn't we strike back in the depression? in fact there was montgomery ward was a major kept waiting for the depression to comeback basically lost their position in the marketplace. it is the private sector debt if you had the debt that left people stranded with too much debt and that happened during world war ii that we had first of all the unemployment that made it easy for people to pay down debt plus a significant amount of inflation to reevaluate the debt so you can into world war ii for
the government is doing that shouldn't be doing. >> that is right. marks a smart guy and i agree with him. the spending issue, we simply cannot rein in while we are focusing on taxes. you shall howl nonserious the president is. he sent timothy geithner on a fools errand. he said he wants a balanced approach. buthe balance is that republicans come up with everything, and he is allowed kharkov on the debt limit. it is hard to understand what the balances of the equation, besides allowing him to retain his approach, which is continuing to spend and rack up massive deficits and continuing higher taxes without any plan that bears that out. remember that his budget hikes taxes and still spends $47 trillion over the next 10 years. gerri: to that point, you look at the approval rating now going down for the first time since the election at 49%. i think it tells you something. maybe american people are looking at this and it looks a whole lot like campaigning to me. it is like the election never happen. we are still campaigning on the campaign trail. today in pennsylvania, talking about what needs
russian government is making it a requirement for tankers that follow that route to use russian ice breakers. it's not only natural gas, the japanese are looking to other energy sources to replace nuclear power after last year's nuclear disaster. an exhibition featuring the latest using solar powered technology has begun near tokyo. about 200 companies are taking part from japan, china and germany and several other countries. demand is growing in japan has power companies are now required to purchase renewable energy. but japanese solar makers lag behind overseas competitors in terms of profitability. this is one of the exhibitors. the japanese company is displaying solar panels with the world's highest level of power efficiency. it's trying to make a profit by selling solar panels as well as the electricity it generates. sharp is exhibiting a new product which is a combination of window glass and a solar battery. although it can be used on homes and office windows, it can generate only half the power of a regular solar panel. >>> more people in japan are planning to travel during t

his first four years increase the size of our federal government spending by 25 percent, and now he's asking for more stimulus money. unfettered control. this really is a hostage situation, and this is not what the american people need. we have 25 million americans looking for jobs, searching for jobs. we don't need to add additional taxes. gerri: covers woman, look. the american public is going to blame your party, the republicans, some 53 percent say of the fiscal cliff happens, every fall over the edge republicans are to blame. how do you square that? is a year on the right side, trying to do things. yet the public certainly does not see your effort. >> i think one of the things that is so difficult for me is that the media cannot not talking about you in particular. the general media has fallen into this rabbit hole of only talking about this one issue. if we were to give the president what he wants, the panacea. that is the pitfall of our problems. it only funds government for eight days. how can we be serious about staying focused on one thing in not talking about all the othe
>> according to a group of open government advocates, the obama administration's efforts and government transparency are mixed. the sunlight foundation held a forum on whether president obama lifted to his pledge to have the most open government in american history. this discussion is 90 minutes. >> good morning. welcome to the kayseri committee and transparency event on transparency in the obama presidency. i am daniel schuman with the sunlight foundation. welcome. there are many meanings of transparency. i'm not going to get into all of them today, but i'm sure there will be many different aspects. their widely divergent opinions on the successes of the obama administration and i hope to explore some of those today. president obama made a number of promises when he was running for president. a number are still available on change.gov. during the course of the administration, new issues came up. everything from campaign finance disclosure to dealing with the lawsuit and others on visitors logs. there's been a lot of changes during the course of the administration. what i
the house republicans. so whether people intend it or not, we have got divided government. >> the american people have also made clear that there is no mandate for raising tax rates. >> keeping them honest, president obama campaigned and won on letting taxes go up for the top earners. so his victory throws a little cold water on that claim. democrats gained seats in the senate and the house, and recent cnn polling shows that more than two in three people support tax hikes for the wealthy. it is a reality that republicans will be dealing with from now until new year's day. joining us now, congressman tom cole from oklahoma. he is a republican, thank you for joining us. >> well, thank you. >> you're proposal that republicans should agree with democrats in extending the tax breaks for those making 250,000 there's a year or less, deal with that later, that is the proposal a lot of republicans are resisting, what is the reaction you get? >> oh, i think the reaction is mixed. some support it, some don't. i think have have more questions about it. look it is simple. i don't believe in raising tax

the speaker makes a mistake and the tea party is not a group that embraces serious tangibles of government that is traditionally work in this country. there are members of congress who got elected because, in fact, the tea party activists across the country were involved in the election. the tea partiers and outsiders -- i would remind john boehner that there was a time when he was the outsider that was an annoyance to the party leadership. i understand the speaker being annoyed when he has people within his caucus that are committed to a set of principles that they make it hard for him to make easy deals. but i would also remind him that people are not going to forsake their principles for something that is as insignificant and their life as a committee assignment remark that is right. >> if he thinks this is a party discipline, he is sadly mistaken. he often knows that from his own experience as a younger time in his service in congress. charles: representative, it has been set from the beginning that the tea party not only poses an incredible threat to the senate democrats, but to estab
the government is. i'm very concerned. this is the first generation where americans are saddling their kids with unsustainable debt. >> exactly. >> sean: we've got to get off the track. just as a conservative, i believe in economic growth. i think government spends too much money. but if you're saying the government's going to take in $1.1 trillion more through tax reform, eliminating deductions, but not increasing the tax rates, but lowering them, you're still getting more money, and it's not through growth, so that means people are paying more, right? >> no. the money is not coming to the government. the money is coming in to be used to lower the rates as well as pay down the debt, sean. you're exactly right about economic growth. and you just look at what's happened in the last year. we've had just a very slight uptick in economic growth. we've seen about a $350 billion revenue increase. the problem is, this administration is spending that money instead of applying it to the debt. can you imagine what kind of economic growth we would see if we had real meaningful corporate tax reform? >>
of their money to the federal government without raising tax rates which we believe will harm our economy. >> all right. this is perhaps the most disappointing development of the day. the house republicans, they were not elected to raise either rates or revenues. they were elected as a check and balance against president obama's reckless deficits and his reckless debt. they were elected to stop the explosive growth of government. the republicans were elected and sent to washington to fight for limited government, balanced budgets, and of course, greater liberty for all the american people. at this moment it seems like they are only offering a democratic light version for america. maybe they need to learn a thing or two from president obama. maybe they need to show a willingness to go over the so-called fiscal cliff. now, if the president really wants to take the country there, maybe they need to let him go there. here's the bottom line. what are we hearing from the white house? we're hearing the president will not negotiate unless taxes are raised on job creators, and we're hearing that the presi
about taking more money away from individuals and giving it to the government is not good for the economy no matter what? >> exactly. particularly when the economy is weak. even keynesian economists will tell you that is not the right time to raise taxes. >> i don't think so. we have a lot of kensyians are saying there is no demand. government has to make up for the demand that doesn't exist from consumers. that means you have to give them money to go out there and spend, no? >> they would say you spend but noo say tax at the same time. they would say that will counteract whatever spending you do, the tax increases. i think what you need to do is actually cut spending. at a minimum keep taxes where they are. be better if you could even reduce them. if you need to raise more revenue do things likes privatizations much better way for the government to get revenue in this type of circumstance. melissa: scott, you make the point that of course the government is going to go out and you know, try to raise taxes on wealthy because they're kind of only ones out there paying taxes.

like ronald reagan who understand this principle. bill clinton famously said the era of big government is over and the end of wel welfare as we know it. why? because government is not the answer. government is the problem. there was that other iconic democrat, the one that occupied the oval office in 1962. he spoke of the benefits of cutting taxes. president obama, i hope you're watching this. >> this can be the most important step we could take to prevent another recession. that is the right time to make tax cuts both for your family budget and the national budget. resulting from a permanent basic reform and reduction in our rate structure, a creative tax cut creating more jobs and income and eventually more revenue. it will include an across the the board top to bottom cut in both corporate and personal income taxes. the billions of dollars this bill will place in the hands of the consumer, and our businessmen, will have both immediate and permanent benefits to our economy. every dollar released from taxation that is spent or invested will help create a new job and a new salary and t
of just 2.5% in the u.s., 1.5% in canada and zero growth in the uk. locally, cutbacks in government spending weighed on the numbers and lower commodity prices also impacted on cash flow and the government is facing more criticism about its effort to keep the budget in surplus while the economy grows. >> the government has had the objective of making sure that we would bring our budget back to surplus when growth has been around trend. what we've been seeking to do through good budget policy has been to provide maximum flexibility to the reserve bank to a just rate so. the government will always put in place appropriate budget settings which will support growth and jobs. >> still, analysts say growth could slow further as the mining investment boom peaks. yesterday, the bank of australia cut interest rates to a record low of 3% and traders are looking further easing next year to offset the falling talks of trade, the high australian daughter and further cutbacks in government spending. >> despite that prognosis for rates and the fact that we're now matching the record lows here, the
. bottom line, i think, it's no way to govern. it is a giant mistake to have all of this in a pool of ambiguity, and as i understand it now, you would know more. i mean, it truly is a stalemate. they are not talking. >> now, you point out that it's the same player, and, i think, you'll agree player that is matter most are the president, speaker boehner. what do we know about the personal relationship that might illuminate what's going on right now? >> well, they started out last year when they were working on the debt ceiling, and they had what are calledded the merlot and nicorette's meetings. in other words, boehner would have a merlot, and obama would chew nicorette. >> you point outside in the book somehow when they took the official photo, both of those vanished. >> yes. they had iced tea there for obama. of course, boehner had his seg represent, and they put the cigarette in the ashtray away for the picture, but they have not closed the deal on the personal relations, and that's a shame. i think if somebody, instead of sponsoring your breakfast and all, sponsor a weekly dinne
in the federal government is i think invest in research and getting a 500-mile battery for electric cars and getting solar energy that is 1 kilowatt installed and finding a way to capture carbon from coal plants that can be turned into fuel that is commercially sold. we should look at the model of unconventional gas in terms of how our system and federal research and our system of private properties have produced a situation where we have a massive advantage over europe and asia in terms of our natural gas. it creates a better economy and that reduces the debt. >> there is a headline predicting we will be producing more oil than saudi arabia beginning in 2020. this is something almost on imagined 10 years ago. -- unimagined 10 years ago. what is the role of the federal government? >> to do things that encouraged the results. to follow up on the fiscal cliff. you can solve this fiscal problem if you grow our role to position relative to everybody else's. a big problem is the percentage of government spending is more than its should be related to total gdp. if there is an easier for millet
government. of course, the legal profession is crucial to the rule of law anywhere. weifang is correct to use the platform he has to force thousands of chinese students and to try to inspire them. it is important that we remain mindful of the admonition that even though lawyers value liberty, which is about taking away liberty, they are content. lawyers and the legal profession are tied to the status quo. this captures the dilemma of the elite bar today in china. its capacity to advance liberalization is constrained by officials and the party. i cannot tell you how many dozens of chinese lawyers have, with great regret, told me this themselves. honesty compels me to say if i were in their position, i am not sure i would act differently. there is a reason we are honoring he weifang today. he has an unusual degree of courage. weifang is not alone. it is striking to me how much of the impetus for rule of law in china has come not so much from elite professionals, but from a chinese of far more humble and modest stations. if you look at rights of protective lawyers and rave at this -- activists a
's book titled the state of ridge, where the government sponsored enterprise in the financial crisis, clearly tom was years ahead of his time at his predictions turned out to be all too accurate. a very long track record of being one of the 04 most forecasters of the state of the financial-services industry but when he is not writing books he spends his time as a fellow at the center for dance to governmental studies at johns hopkins university. tom also served as staff on the financial crisis inquiry commission and in my opinion there are a few things i would disagree with the commission's findings one thing i know for certain is the commission's report was stronger because of tom's involvement. the book is also informed largely by tom's experience on commission staff. we are fortunate to have with us alex pollock to offer his thoughts on the book. alex is resident fellow at the american enterprise institute. i got to know alex a decade ago when he was president and chief operating officer of the bank of chicago from 1991 from 2004 and i would also say i always found him to be one o
the present has asked for, to let the tax rates go up on the top brackets, it would run the government for a limited period of time. roughly $85 billion. so the president really needs to tell us what his plan is. i'm increasingly pessimistic, not optimistic, because the president seems to be campaigning, rather than going anywhere and doing anything to get a deal. because if we don't get a deal, it will hurt a lot of people. >> are you saying that the way we're going now, we could actually go off the fiscal cliff? taxes go up on everyone. >> we don't know what the president has said he needs, because revenue is not enough to solve the problem. as you know, we have a trillion dollar annual deficit and this would not close that gap at all. so the president needs to come up with a plan and for better or worse going to require leadership. no member of the senate or the house is going to be able to do this, this is something the president has to do by himself and he can't do it on the campaign trail. >> let me ask you this because you wrote an op-ed today and you wrote about divided governm

"lost cananade." da." >what is the state of the relationship? >> i disagree. i said it is an important relationship as canadians with the united states. one of the best thing this country has it is neighborhood. i was talking to prime minister netanyahu.

political problems later. i am concerned in particular about the arrangements of the system of government, etc. the political problem is that it narrows the process very much to the ruling party. those who backed it up and created a process that was not consentual at all, and to create a constitution on such a narrow basis is certainly not a guarantee for stability in the future. >> a lot of forces are coming together against morsi. is this a battle the president can win? >> the judiciary is a formidable opponent to have. the supreme constitutional court will meet on sunday, and it will be very interesting to watch what they have to say about the situation. on a technical level, he needs the judges also to run the referendum because they are an integral part of the election administration. he really has to win over large parts of the judiciary to make it happen from a technical standpoint. in the short term, he will have real trouble. >> thanks so very much. >> palestinians have been celebrating their recognition by the united nations general assembly. an overwhelming majority made palest
